Good day

I have now translated 6 books and have built up more experience in this type of work from English to Afrikaans. I still find time to read both Afrikaans and English Fiction books inbetween work and translating. 

I have read many translated books in both Afrikaans and English and have, in most cases, felt that I could have done a better job translating the feeling that an author might have tried to create, but the translater was not always successful in my opinion.

I am doing the translating work as a second income in my spare time, and hence has to choose long working periods to ensure that I finish the books in time, all with the highest standard of work.

I genre preference is that of Fiction. I love suspence, action, drama and crime stories. Historic Romance, Medical Romance, Modern Romance and mostly Romance are also enjoyed. And don't forget about those Westerns. 

Hope to be translating soon...

Yours Sincere

Marlette

I have had the pleasure of working with Marlette Taljaard on a previous book in the Lone Jack Kid series. She translated this 2nd book to my satisfaction in a professional manner. She is now working on the 3rd book in the series. I recommend her highly as she is excellent in translating manuscripts into African.
